Making It With Allie - Thank Yous and Word Art

Hello Friends!
I first want to say thank you to everyone who took a moment to leave me very sweet notes of condolences last week.  It was very much appreciated.

A while back, I off-handedly mentioned; within ear-shot of my five year old, Miss AuBrynne, that I was thinking of re-doing her bedroom decor. I need to have my personal filter level raised, because Miss AuBrynne has been asking me ever since, when we could start.
Well, last week, I decided I might be able to get her, now guilt inspiring questions to slow down if I went ahead and painted the wall.
Ha! Right.
Anyways, I decided to let Miss AuBrynne pick the colors in her room entirely.
Actually, I told her she could have control of how the whole room gets decorated.
She took this task, completely seriously and chose some REALLY bright colors.
I debated over-ruling her choices, but decided that I could re-paint if it was truly terrible.
Well, I am completely impressed with the colors she chose and on which walls each went.
I think she might have a knack for this color thing!
Anyways, I am not going to reveal the colors just yet. Mostly because, being the procrastinator I am, I keep putting off taking pictures until it is night time and they just aren't great.
BUT! I did complete a piece of wall art that Miss AuBrynne has requested.
She has requested a few VERY specific things to complete her room.
I made a piece of word art in the style of the old New York Subway Signage.
I went through a bunch of some very fun photos that I have of Miss AuBrynne all over the island of Kauai, the place she calls "Ahhh...Home"
I used Lime green Canvas in the 9oz weight and then some really cool Pearl Heat Transfer.
The letters actually look like the Mother of Pearl you find all of the place in Hawaii.

Miss AuBrynne told me that she thinks her word art is Perfect. And to get started on her Surf Board, Hula Girl, Grass Skirt bed-skirt, wall decals and Quilt for her bed.
Nothing like a list, right??

So, what do you all think?
